Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The story seems to imply that by sacrificing the people of their realm, the Hanged Monkey folks somehow brought about the collapse of the Sublime Empire.

The name "The Hanged Monkey Whose Name was Bob" is just hilarious.

Con: It’s hard to see how the events of the story could have brought the empire down, but otherwise it’s hard to make any sense out of the story.
